The most wanted man in Wakefield prison is the Warden!

Henry Brubaker (Robert Redford), a newly appointed prison warden, passes himself off as a convict and spends his first few days at the prison observing the squalor and brutality of the institution from the inside. Revealing his true identity to the guards, he sets out on a programme of prison reform but when he discovers the existence of a number of secret graves he uncovers a scandal and corruption among prison officers and local businessmen. This stark, modern drama based on the workings of a real penal institution, contains the best of Redford's recent screen appearances and co-stars Yaphet Kotto and Jane Alexander.
